My family and I will miss Dave very much. The Bunseys are true family friends, and Dave was always the somewhat loud, somewhat opinionated, massive personality when we'd get together. He was also the man who would help anyone out - I'll never forget him taking an entire day with me to guide me through changing the transmission in my Mustang (well, he basically did it). My condolences to Sean, Dave Jr., and Tim and their families.
